I haven’t always been good at taking advice, sometimes I’m still not. Often it depends on who it comes from, what it’s about and what kind of mood I’m in.
So when Laurie emailed me after reading my post “I Just Don’t Know” about my Streaming Pillow, I’m glad I was open to her advice. She said that the pillow just didn’t seem right and suggested I stuff just the streaming part, with less stuffing and make the edge bigger and leave it floppy. I could see it immediately and couldn’t wait to try her suggestions.
The only thing I didn’t do was make the edge bigger, once it was all together, it seemed just right to me. Until I tried out Laurie’s ideas I was ambiguous about making Streaming Pillows, now I can’t wait to make more. This one and a few others will be available for sale at the Functional Art Show in the Pig Barn Gallery in October.
I’m glad I was able to hear Laurie’s advice.
